New ABC Series Stars Adoptee

According to AngryAsianMan, and various other sources, actress Jamie Chung will star in the new ABC Series “Samurai Girl,” which is apparently based on a book called Samurai Girl:  The Book of the Sword, by Carrie Asai.

Chung stars as “Heaven” growing up as a teenager and dealing with her rich adoptive parents.  The plot twist is that she somehow learns the ways of the Samurai from her bloodline.  Sounds a little Hollywood-Asian-ized to me, but it’s good to see adoptees getting some legitimacy on tv.

I haven’t seen a trailer yet, but sources say the series will be out by the end of the year on ABC.  Here are some links about Jamie Chung, and the upcoming series.

  1. Just another comment…I may have alluded to the fact that Jamie Chung is an adoptee in the headline. What I meant was that the character she plays is an adoptee in the series.
